Mountainfilm: Wade Davis Is Guest Director For 2024 (+ Passes On Sale)!

Based in Telluride, Mountainfilm recently announced the Guest Director Wade Davis for the 2024 gathering of the tribe.

Wade Davis is a  man for all seasons: cultural anthropologist and ethno-botanist, poet and scientist, filmmaker and licensed river guide. Over the years at Mountainfilm, Wade achieved rock-star status, playing to packed venues filled with his “groupies.” (I admit to being in that fold.)

“Mountainfilm made my life. It’s where I first connected with National Geographic and where I met many of my life-long friends and colleagues. I feel like I am coming home.”  – Wade Davis.

One of the most celebrated Mountainfilm speakers of all time, Wade is Professor of Anthropology and the BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia.

Between 2000 and 2013 Wade served as Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. Named by the National Geographic Society as one of the “Explorers for the Millennium,” he has been described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.”

Wade holds degrees in anthropology and biology and received his Ph.D. in ethnobotany, all from Harvard University.

Author of 23 books, Wade’s list of accolades and accomplishments could fill a book of their own.

Wade is working with the programming teammate Mountainfilm to curate a diverse group of speakers and festival guests.

“We are incredibly honored to have Wade at our upcoming festival,” said Festival Director Suzan Beraza.
